I have a bit of a problem in that something is working its way through my garden and sytematically eating everything off! All of the leves are being eaten like a catapiller would. I have seen a few red lily beetles but surely they cant be eating everything can they? What ever it is especially loves the foxglove leaves and well anything really! New hardy gerranium leaves are also being eaten off as they emerge. Even the bulbs as they emerge looking a bit moth eared. I have tulips, daffs, alliums and they are all being nibbled as they push through. Could it be slugs and snails? I havent seen any to speak of the only thing I have seen is this red lily beetle. It is really started to devastate things coming through and things that last through the winter.
